Devi sukta

Devi sukta

Devi sukta, also known as Ambhrani sukta, is a hymn of the Rigveda (RV 10.125). It consists of 8 verses and is dedicated to Vak (speech).

The hymn is still in use in contemporary Hinduism, recited at the end of the recitation of Devi Mahatmyam.

This was written by Vak, a prominent rishi of around the 5th century BC. It is famous because she is said to have sung it in ecstasy on realising her oneness with Brahman.
